Fab Free Designer Friday – 06/23/2017 – EscalateD

EscalateD Info Desk
Happy what’s left of Friday Fab Free’rs! I hope each of you has had a fun day that seemed to get away from you as I did. Even though it’s late in the day, I’m still excited to be here with you for this weeks Fab Free Designer Friday post. Today I get to share with you a cool little hair shop called EscalateD. The quote at the bottom of the Info Desk at EscalateD pretty much says it all. Life is too short for boring hair, especially in Second Life. Sorry gentlemen, this shop currently only has hair for the ladies. The most notable thing for me about the hairstyles aside from the style which is edgy and urban, are the bold bright color options along with rich natural colors. The EscalateD shop its self is small, however there are a lot of styles to choose from. At the landing point in the center of the shop you can find all the usual information. This is also where you’ll see info about current hunts and events, as well as group gifts.

EscalateD GiftsAs you can see in the photo above, there are many opportunities to score very cute FREE hairstyles at EscalateD. There is 1 current and 3 previous EscalateD group gifts currently available. There is also a group only Midnight Mania board. The EscalateD group has a one time join fee of 150 linden. In the same area of the store you’ll also see 4 other gifts including the FREE Fabulously Free exclusive group gift. Like always, the Fab Free group is FREE to join. For a closer look at the Fab Free gift at EscalateD, check out Love’s announcement post here. In addition to all the cool group gifts, there is 1 freebie, and 2 non group Lucky Letter boards. You won’t want to miss out on all these amazing offers! Also, check out the weekly sales item next to the info desk, there you’ll find a discounted style each week. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Crochet Bikini

Yellow Bikini
Oh Hello! Welcome back Fab Free’rs, I’m glad you’re here because I’m really excited about sharing with you today. Stick with me and I’ll tell you all about these gorgeous skins, the hairstyle, and this itsy bitsy teenie weenie yellow crochet bikini!

Summer is For Skin

Both of the lovely skins are FREE group gifts for the month of May at Deluxe Body Shop. Each skin comes with a classic system layer skin, and a single omega applier that will work with Omega compatible mesh bodies and heads. You’ll find both gift vendors just inside the entrance in front of the circulation desk. You’ll also need to join the Deluxe Body Shop group. There is a one time join fee of 299 linden for the Deluxe Body Shop group. While you’re there picking up  your group gifts, take a minute to click the group only Midnight Mania boards just behind the desk. Also, you’ll see 24 (yep twenty-four) group only Lucky Letter boards in the same location.

Beach Hair

I love the long beachy waves of this hairstyle by Mutiny in Heaven. Everyone can pick up this Mutiny in Heaven hairstyle for FREE exclusively at The Free Dove. The gift comes in the brunette color, and the blonde color shown. Also there are two sizes of each color. If you haven’t visited the hair section of The Free Dove lately, I’d recommend it. There’s no group to join, and you can pick up this recent addition along with several others.

Yellow Crochet Bikini

I knew I wanted to wear a cute bikini for this post, it is early days of summer and I’m longing for a trip to the beach. This applier bikini from Ashmoot is their exclusive Fabulously Free in SL group gift. The package includes appliers for Slink, Maitreya, and Omega compatible bodies. There is also a classic system layer top and bottom included. Anyone in the Fab Free group can get this gift at Ashmoot by wearing their Fab Free group tag and clicking the gift vendor.

Fab Free Designer Friday – 05/19/2017 – Adoness

Adoness Exterior
Happy Friday Fab Free! The pretty moonlit building pictured above is none other than Adoness, the shop for this week’s Designer Friday post. Adoness is probably best known for their unique edgy hairstyles in rich bold colors. However you’ll also find some ladies clothing, accessories, and even nail appliers and eyes. I would describe the style at Adoness as slightly gothic lolita. However I think it lends itself not only to an urban style, but other fantasy genres like anime also.

Adoness Info & Gifts
Once inside the shop, you’ll see the interior is uniquely decorated like the exterior. Just inside the entrance on the wall you’ll see the current Fab Free exclusive FREE group gift from Adoness. Astrid showed this gift previously in her post “Join Me at the Pub.” To get this gift, just wear your Fab Free group tag and click the vendor. If you’re not already a member, not to worry, the Fab Free group is always FREE to join.  In the center of the room you’ll find a column with a desk and a subscriber joiner, in world group, a link to the blog, Marketplace, and a landmark giver on one side. Sitting on the desk are two dollarbie hairstyles. On a different side of the same column is where you’ll find the information about store groups and affiliations.

While most of the items at Adoness are for the ladies, there are several items like eyes and hairstyles that I believe could be considered unisex. Browse the hairstyles on the left side of the shop, and find clothing, accessories, gachas, and other items to the right. There’s even more shopping upstairs.

Bright Eyes, Blue Denim

Snapshot_004Well hello there Fabulouses!  He’s stuck at work on this glorious warm spring day, while I have the day off ;).   Of course I’d rather we had the day off together, but I decided I’d try and make the best of it and head out to the park nearby this afternoon to enjoy the splendors of spring that I have been so missing over the long winter, like the smell of green grass, and flowers.. and the tickle of butterflies!

While I have your attention here, I have some exciting free hair news today as well as a little tidbit to share with you about a sweet summer denim dress I found as a group gift.

The Astonishing Truth

I’m sure you don’t need me to say it again… but I will… I’m a big fan of Truth Hair.  I wear it quite often on the blog, and inworld.  I was so excited to see that with his new group gift for May called Kare, he has updated his textures with more gloss and shine and has also included a Hairstylist HUD that allows you to shift the hair around your shoulders a few different ways – which is fantastic because there will be no more interfering with collars and jackets!!  This group has a one time fee of 350L to join, but seriously…  a whole fatpack of awesome hair every month…  Nuff said!

Never underestimate the power of a little denim dress

It’s a little tough to see in the photo above, so I took a few minutes and snapped another angle so you could see the Camilla Dress in Sky Denim that you can pick up as a free group gift at TRS Designs.  This group is free to join and there are multiple gifts to score.

Sizes included:

  • XXS-L + Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza
  • TMP

Nameless Unicorn

Unicorns
Well Hello There, and happy Hump Day Fab Free’rs! We’ve made it half way to the weekend. Speaking of weekends, I am glad to be back from my long weekend away. I always feel like I’ve been gone for ages when I am unable to be online for a few days at a time. That said, I’m eager to share with you all the info about this o-m-g cute dress from Stix and this sloppy girl hairstyle from MOON.

I Know You.

It’s not a secret that I have a love for unicorns. It’s something the creator of Stix, Pixy Snook and I have in common. My girlish side that still loves unicorns, glitter, pink, and rainbows squealed with glee upon seeing this mesh dress in the Stix group notices. As shown above, this simple snug little dress comes with a texture change hud that gives you five equally adorable options. I love them all but if forced to choose, the zombicorn version is my favorite. Don’t ask me why, I don’t have an answer! lol The dress comes in a fitted mesh size for Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique, and Slink Hourglass. How do you get this awesome FREE group gift? Join the Stix (Pixy Stix) group, it’s FREE to join and either check the past notices or head over the Stix main location.

Nameless
If I Were Blind, I’d Know What You Are.

While going through the ton of notices I had from being away over the weekend, I spotted a notice from MOON about a new group gift. More girlish excitement ensued, because gift hair! Yep, I’m easily excited, and not at all ashamed of that fact. Needless to say I ran over to MOON and threw on my group tag. This hairstyle is a group exclusive sultry sloppy pony with lots of long strands. The FREE group gift comes in a fat-pack of color huds, so no matter which color you prefer, or if you like to change things up, you’re covered. The MOON group does have a one time join fee of 100 lindens. I think this “Nameless” hair is worth the fee alone, however you’ll find several other previous group gifts still available as well.

Here are the details, enjoy!

T.G.I.F.

TGIFIt’s Fri-yay!!! Hello hello Fab Free’rs, I hope you’re enjoying this fine day, or are about to have a great weekend. As for me, I’m glad to be here sharing my Fabulous finds with you. For today I wanted to focus on hair and makeup. In my personal opinion one of the best things about Second Life is the ability to infinitely customize the look of your avatar. To say that my personal taste is eclectic would be an understatement, I love the freedom SL gives me to change my look entirely on a whim. That said, not all changes need to be dramatic. Sometimes something as simple as a new hairstyle, a new set of eyes, a bold eyeliner, or a different shade of lipstick can be all the change you need.

Speaking of hairstyles, I really like this FREE gift from Moda. I think the half up half down messy bun a great mix of casual and effortlessly chic. There’s no need to join a group or slap a board to get this FREEbie from Moda. The gift is FREE for everyone, and includes a chest-friendly fit. This is the only hair color included, however it’s FREE and really it’s quite pretty. To get this gift, head to the very back of the Moda store and click on the vendor. There are also several other non-group and group gifts waiting.
Double Take Okay, I know they are mildly distracting, but please do your best to ignore the odd little shadows that appeared in these photos! lol I wanted to give a side by side comparison of an already lovely skin with the addition of some various makeup appliers. Also, check out those eyes! The pretty mesh eyes are a FREE gift available to everyone at Dulce Secrets. I wouldn’t have guessed pink and silvery grey eyes would have been so pretty and passably natural looking. I am however, pleasantly surprised at how unique and pretty these eyes from Dulce Secrets look. You can get these pretty pink peepers for FREE by clicking the gift vendor next to the Midnight Mania board at Dulce Secrets, no group needed.

Next, the deep dark winged liner with the white added to the waterline that speaks to my soul is from Pink Acid. I was so excited when I came across it! I know, I’m a complete nerd and I don’t even care. I’m a sucker for beautifully done heavy winged eyeliner. I think my inability to create this look on myself in real life might make me covet it even more in Second Life! lol This Catwa applier by Pink Acid is available on the Marketplace for just 1 linden. You’ll also find a classic system layer in the package, so a mesh head isn’t a must.

Finally, the purple/mauve lipstick is another applier I picked up for FREE on the Marketplace from a shop called Shiny Stuffs. This FREE wearable demo is also an applier for Catwa heads only. Not only does an applier like this one give you the pop of color, but they often appear to change the shape of your lips, as you can see in the above photo. Ultimately, this fun FREE wearable demo by Shiny Stuffs is a beautiful color, and well worth the effort if you wear a Catwa head.

Here are the details, Enjoy!/

Black is My Favorite Color

Black is My Favorite ColorHello Fab Free’rs! I hope you’re having a great week so far. I got back Monday evening from a long weekend visiting family, and as much as I loved seeing everyone, I’m still bushed! lol Thankfully I was able to steal a little time to myself today and share with all the Fabulous Readers some great freebie finds. Bargain hunting always makes me feel better!

Starting from top to bottom, this cute chin-length bob hairstyle with bangs is a FREE group gift at YumYum. Technically it was the May 2016 gift, but it’s still available and still adorable. This gift includes a color-change hud with 3 options. All 3 colors have this same dark-blonde/light-brown base color with a blue, purple (shown), or pink color dye at the ends. The hud also allows you to resize the hair to best fit your head shape. The YumYum store group is FREE to join as well! I’d run over to YumYum and pick this one up while it’s still available.

Next, I felt like this FREE dress by Apple May Designs at The Free Dove was a great transition piece for the changing season. It is short and cute like a summer dress, with half sleeves and a pretty textured black material perfect for fall. Not to mention, I think this casual black dress could be easily dressed up or down, and worn with just about any shoe style you wanted. You’ll find this dress strait back on the wall at Free Dove. The dress comes n standard mesh sizes with a matching alpha.

Finally, this bold mandala style leg tattoo is a FREE group gift at Reckless. There are actually several FREE group gifts at Reckless currently, but I liked how this one looked with the AMD dress the best. This beautiful tattoo comes with an applier hud that works for Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza bodies, a second hud for TMP bodies, and classic system layers. There’s also an option for fresh or faded versions of the tattoo. The Reckless group is 100 lindens to join, making this detailed tattoo a steal! Don’t forget to check out the other gifts while you’re there!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Tropical Daydream

Tropical All weekend it’s been raining in my real world. All weekend I’ve been dreaming of somewhere warm and tropical to have an adventure! Thankfully I have Second Life to help my daydreams seem more real. Recently I found out about a little shop called LaGeeny. Even better, I found out about their several group gifts and camping chairs! Also, redMint has an August group gift out, which I love, and a little something extra from NSP Florals.
Tropical 2 This FREE dress from LaGeeny just might be the perfect casual summer dress. It looks light and comfortable with great details. Thanks to a texture change hud with several pattern and solid color options this dress is ultra wearable and could go with just about any style. One of the solid colors is particularly pretty! I chose this playful red floral pattern because it is not only pretty, but it played into that tropical vacation I’ve been dreaming of! The dress is fully mesh and comes in several sizes. How do you get it? First you’ll need to join the LaGeeny in world group. The group is FREE to join. Then you’ll need to camp out in the group only camping chair for 45 minutes. I know 45 minutes sounds like a long time, but if you’ve got someone to chat with while you wait, the time goes by fast. Thankfully I had Love in my IMs keeping me company! There are also some non-group camping chairs and several group gifts available, so take a moment to stop by LaGeeny and take advantage.

Sterling Silver hair is all the rage right now, and I have to admit I am totally on board with this trend. I love the silvery blue tones I’ve been seeing. This long side-swept hairstyle is the most recent FREE group gift at redMint. I’ve always liked redMint hair because it has a unique style to it that you just don’t see anywhere else. The redMint group is FREE to join at this time and there are a few previous FREE group gifts also available. In the package with this lovely gift you’ll find a regular size version of the style, and a larger version for the busty ladies.

Sometimes just the right accessory makes an outfit. I think this is true with the gorgeously done hibiscus flower by NSP Florals. The flower can be resized via touch menu, and costs just 25 lindens on the Marketplace.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Little Yellow Bird

Little Yellow BirdHappy Weekend Fab Free! I first want to say thanks to those who read the blog and especially those who take the time to comment or message the Fab Free blog team in world with compliments, thanks, and well wishes. I got a pretty big compliment from a reader recently and it really made my week. So thank you! This really is a labor of love, and I’m honored to be part of the Fab Free team.

Mush Mush Mush! lol ❤

Mush and gush aside, I’ve been so excited about all the FREE hair and skins I’ve been seeing on the blog and around the grid. Just recently Olive re-opened their in-world store and set up 3 Lucky Boards that are open to everyone. That’s right, no group needed at this time. This long soft wavy hairstyle called “Kelly” is one of the 3 FREE Lucky Board prizes. This cute mesh hairstyle from Olive comes in a blonde color pack with a “streaked” option, as well as a “boobies” fit. Though I am not usually a blonde in world, I actually really like this particular blonde pack because as you can see there are pink or what you could call strawberry blonde options that are more pink than red along with a wide range of pretty blonde colors. Love it! Little Yellow Bird CloseHow could you not smile wearing this sunny new skin from Stix? This “Canary” version of the Fauna skin is the most recent FREE group gift at Stix. She’s freaking adorable! As with most gifts from Stix, this one generously includes all sorts of appliers. There are appliers in this gift for stuff I’m not even aware of! lol The included appliers are Kemono Body, Soul Uni Ears, a HUD with appliers for Slink, Belleza, Maitreya, and Omega compatible bodies,  a TMP applier, and appliers for Catwa, Lelutka, Genesis, and Omega compatible heads. Along with a laundry list of appliers, I hope I didn’t leave any out,  this FREE gift of course includes classic system layers. You won’t be disappointed in this FREEbie. The Stix (PixyStix) group is also FREE to join at this time!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

You’re Cute And All, But I’m Not Sharing My Coffee

Snapshot_006
Hey there Fabulouses!  Isn’t this an adorable set?  You can pick up the Tucked Shirt and Skirt Set as a free group gift at Imbue in both red (as shown) and blue versions!  These sets come in XXS – L mesh sizes and it includes the co-ordinating alpha layer, but it worked great with my Maitreya Lara Body too.  I added the Uma Denim Vest by Addams that I had previously purchased just waiting for the perfect outfit to complete it, but I would totally wear it on it’s own too.  I was just looking for excuses to wear the vest!

The Imbue group is 50L to join, however there are other gifts to pick up as well including the mug I am holding in my photo that says “Don’t Make Me Drop A House On You”.
